Last night's 6-3 win in Detroit was an exciting one for the Flyers and their fans as the Flyers came back from being down 3-1 to win.
Unfortunately there is a negative side to this comeback.
It has been a trend for the Flyers to not show up for a full 60 minutes. Of course teams are going to have their off nights and down periods, but the Flyers have been consistently inconsistent both in games and overall.

Ranked towards the bottom of the league in scoring, the Flyers were able to utilize a rare offensive outburst Wednesday night in Detroit en route to a 6-3 win.
Coming into Wednesday's game against the Red Wings, the Flyers averaged just 2.07 goals per game, which places them second to last in the league, just ahead of the Buffalo Sabres at 1.61.
Behind a career night from Sean Couturier and a strong four-goal third period, the Flyers were able to almost triple their average.
In fact, it was Couturier’s first career four-point night (at least in the regular season), as he finished the game with 2 goals and 2 assists. He now has five goals and five assists in nine games since breaking his scoring drought on Nov. 19 against Ottawa.

In an effort that was lacking any the Flyers lost one of the worst games of the season, a 2-0 no-show to the Wild on Monday. They managed just 21 shots all game with 11 coming in the third period alone.
